“Very good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

Excellent business hotel located on the Sheikh Zayed road, service and food are excellent as you'd expect but the location also means that the rooms facing the main road can have a bit of background motorway noise.

Not the most fashionable / modern hotel but a very pleasant stay and the pool area is also very nice.

Fantastic staff and very nice room. The food was excellent, we had breakfast and dinner. A lot to choose from on the buffe. Good facilities and pool. Nothing to complain about. Nice location and close to Burj Khalifa and Metro. Remember that Dubai is a very large city.

We loved our stay at Shangri-La Hotel in Dubai. Our room at the 38th floor was spacious and clean. It was very well equipped. The bathroom even had a scale. Both shower and bathtub. Soap and schampoo from L'occitane. Free waterbottles and fruit every day. Free newspaper as well. Many TV-channels. Minibar.
The staff was so friendly and helpful. Breakfast was superb. We had half-board (breakfast & dinner). Very good choice. Priceworthy when we found out the actual price for dinner. It was a buffet with many choices, even a sushi chef. The dessert table was magnificent!
The pool area was elegant with free towels. Pool bar.
The hotel had a fine gym, tennis court and squash court. We didn't use the spa - it was quite expensive.
The hotel also offered various restaurants but we didn't try them.
Free wireless internet all over the hotel area.
The hotel had a time table for free shuttlebus to the malls and to Jebel Ali Golf Resort where you could use their beach beds and their towels for free.
The location was good near the metro station if you want to reach different parts of Dubai. You could walk to the Jumeirah open beach (ca 35 min). It was not possible to walk towards Burj Khalifa because of the big roads in between. If you don't want to go by metro, taxi was very cheap! I recommend this hotel! I would certainly go back!

This was my second stay at the Dubai Shangri-La, again on a work related course. The hotel is an ideal base for a course or just a break in the city. It has a warm feel about it and fortunately lacks the pretentiousness of many other 'top' hotels in Dubai. The Executive room I had for two nights was well furnished and benefited from free wireless internet. The gym is well stocked with hi-tech equipment and there is a relaxing outside pool, which becomes an interesting backdrop for the pool bar, which is popular at night and worth a visit. There are a number of dining options, my favourite being Hoi An, serving wonderful Vietnamese cuisine.
The staff, as with every Shangri-La hotel I have stayed at were excellent - welcoming, friendly and genuinely eager to make my stay a memorable one.

Room Tip: A room with a view of the Burj Khalifa!

I've stayed at the Shangri-La many times before, but my most recent visit was the first time I had experienced the Horizon Club Suite. A truly fantastic room. To be frank, it is probably too fantastic for a person who is staying there on his own, but that can hardly count as a criticism. The Suite is spacious with a large comfortable bedroom, spacious living room and dining area and luxurious bathroom complete with a large stand-alone bath and a seperate walk-in shower. All the amenities you would expect are also provided along with the addition of a fresh fruit bowl every day. A further excellent addition is that of the Horizon Club Lounge which serves an excellent breakfast in the morning, a great afternoon tea and provides a wide selection of drinks and snacks in the evening. Whilst I usually spend some time swimming in the outdoor pool on the 4th Floor, on this occasion I opted for the Horizon Club indoor pool which, although small, affords you excellent views of the city. Complete with a jacuzzi and a gym, the Horizon Club will definitely warrant a return as it takes all of the advantages of staying at the Shangri-La and doubles them. As one would expect, the high levels of service from the staff (particularly those at reception and in the lounge) continues.
